Celebrating my brother’s 23rd birthday early, as he is a newly minted MBA/CPA-certified auditor at a prestigious Midtown firm, my parents and I thought it was a good idea to go to Adour: Alain Ducasse at the St. Regis New York. It’s been awarded as a 1* Michelin restaurant [...]
Hearing good things about Maialino, I cannot help but make a reservation during Restaurant Week when I found out they are participating. It’s inexpensive compared to what one would pay for lunch, as most of their pastas hover in the upper teens, as the main courses are in the twenty dollar range. And it’s run [...]

To those of you who are really waiting on my Hong Kong/China vacation posts, please do be patient. I’m trying to post up the Restaurant Week stuff before it’s irrelevant to read (like the Gramercy Tavern post I did previously; they’re not participating RW now).
Last Thursday, I’ve arranged lunch with Mary to Alto for [...]
